Sailfish on trolling by Jean Philippe - Rod Fishing Club - Rodrigues Island - Mauritius - Indian Ocean

For the 5th following year, this Swiss family we like very much hasn’t had the results of the previous years. The meteorological disturbance IMELDA changed the plans. Thus, the 3 days including a 34h trip on the Eastern Bank, have been moved forward and became 2 one day trips with a rough sea. Justine has not been able to regain her junior world record of dogtooth tuna; and Jean Philippe did not improve his last year’s black marlin record (it was a beautiful one of 265.5kg). He had to be content with a sailfish on trolling, which he actually had not catch yet. However, considering the conditions, there was a nice variety of fish: yellowfin tunas, wahoos, doggies, jobfish, rainbow runners and trevallies.

Appointment is already booked for next year… but with no cyclone at all!
